“...and this PentaTone release is probably among the five best-sounding high-resolution discs encountered thus far....The new PentaTone is definite Want List material.”
“The Stravinsky collection is particularly attractive as it contains some of the composer’s best-known works for small orchestra in brilliant performances, vividly recorded. The entire program, is a delight.”
“Each instrument is perfectly scaled and dimensional. Let’s hope that PentaTone gives us more Järvi with chamber forces to complement the full-orchestra repertoire he’s addressing with Cincinatti.”
“This lively and loveble disc of Stravinsky’s neoclassical and small ensemble pieces stands with the best available. The two Suites for Small Orchestra never have been better done… the Deutche Kammerphilharmonie is a world-class chamber orchestra, and it doe itself proud here.”
“ In sum: a stunningly persuasive recreation of the sound of real instruments arrayed in a real performing space-in this case, Radio Bremen’s lively Grosser Sendesaal”.

“ And the Galop that concludes the Suite No. 2 is a stunning showpiece that deserves to be heard on a fair number of audiophile radio shows.”
Atlanta Audio Society
“ ..interesting, first of all because of the programming, furthermore because of the sound quality and last but not least because of the excellent performance of the orchestra”.
“ This is a recording of demonstration calibre for a new formatthat allows intricate resolution. Artistically and sonically, in both departments, this hybrid SA-CD is a must-have recording for all collections”.
